Hastings School’s Race Against Hunger

In 2020, 2.37 billion people did not have access to enough safe and nutritious food, and it is estimated that 1 in 9 people are hungry or malnourished. Around the world, we produce more than enough food to feed the global population – but, unfortunately, more than 810 million still go to bed hungry every night. This has to change.

The Action Against Hunger Foundation is an international charity committed to saving the lives of malnourished children and supporting their families to beat hunger. This brilliant organisation raises awareness about the issue of hunger and malnutrition, especially among students worldwide. It encourages young people to take part in fighting this issue and help others that are less fortunate than them. Action Against Hunger have fight hunger in 46 countries and have reached 25 million people around the world and they are changing lives globally. For the 25th year running, more than 1400 schools across the world will take part in this charity event, with more than 400,000 young people uniting against the horrors of world hunger.

Here at Hastings School, we are extremely keen to be a part of this so during the next four weeks (Monday 9th May – Tuesday 6th June), we will be supporting the 25th edition of the ‘Fight World Hunger’ campaign. Our Y3 to Y9 students will be challenging themselves by running the first 10 minutes of each PE lesson during these 4 weeks and try to complete as many laps as they can in order to get more funds for the FIGHT AGAINST HUNGER!

For every £1 raised, 96p goes directly towards Action Against Hunger’s charitable activities.

Join us in this fight and support your children and children worldwide by sponsoring their challenges.
